It's the season of giving, the most wonderful time of the year. How appropriate then, that we celebrate in true fashion with the kick off of a brand new charitable cause. Did we mention that this charity involves new apparel for you? We're proud to introduce to you our new campaign, aptly title "A Beautiful Cause."
So what's this cause all about, you ask? Twice a year, we'll collaborate with one of our fantastic artists to design a t-shirt specifically with your style in mind. The shirts will be sold right here at Bella Vita, and will be available for purchase during the 6 months that the chosen artists' campaign runs. Most importantly, each artist will choose a charity that is near and dear to their heart, and at least $10 of proceeds from each t-shirt sale will be given back to that particular organization.
The initial design after the artwork was scanned! The full t-shirt will be unveiled at our Holiday Open House on Thursday, Dec. 3.
We're excited to debut our first shirt at this year's Holiday Open House on December 1st. Our first featured artist is the incredibly talented Emily Ozier, and we can't wait to show you her fashionable creation. She will even join us at the Holiday Open House to introduce her latest work of art in person! To top it all off, she has chosen to donate all profits to Blood: Water Mission in Africa, a cause that she has supported and believed in for quite some time now. The objective of the charity is to create awareness and funds needed to ensure clean blood and water in sub-Saharan Africa, an area highly affected by the HIV virus. EMYO's shirt will be available until June 1st, when we'll begin a new campaign by unveiling our second featured artist.
Why not shop for a cause this holiday season? We hope you'll help us as we give back some of our many blessings to those in need. Plus, there's no better way to become a bit more familiar with the amazing local artists that we're so lucky to know!
